About This Degree
The Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC) Certificate of Graduation is designed for students who are exploring program/major options in order to complete a degree at Vincennes University and for students who plan to transfer from VU to complete a degree elsewhere.
The STGEC allows students to identify their aptitudes and build an academic foundation that serves as the “first year” of course work for a range of degree programs at Vincennes University, including associate and baccalaureate degrees. The STGEC gives students the opportunity to prepare academically and socially for college success in order to compete in a global workplace. Successful completion of the STGEC will be recognized for transfer to public institutions of higher education in Indiana, in compliance with Senate Enrollment Act 182 (2012).
Note regarding transfer: Successful completion of the Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC) requirements is not a guarantee of admission to a particular program at a state educational institution. The Statewide Transfer General Education Core does not add to, subtract from, or change any requirements for a major. Students need to work closely with an advisor to determine what relationship, if any, exists between requirements for general education and requirements for a specific major.
